Movement(s): Cubism

Conrad Kickert (Johan Conrad Theodoor Kickert) (1882 – 1965), was a self-taught painter, an art critic and a Dutch art collector.

Between 1903 and 1910, he worked in Dombourg with, in particular, Jan Toorop and in Bergen. He was one of the first cubists in the Netherlands. In 1910, he founded the Modern Art Circle in Amsterdam, together with Piet Mondriaan, Jan Sluyters and Jan Toorop.

From 1912, Conrad Kickert mainly lived in Paris, in Denfert-Rochereau, or boulevard Raspail, where he had already visited his friend Lodewijk Schelfhout. With Schelfhout and Mondrian he moved into a studio in Montparnasse and exhibited with painters such as Georges Braque, Raoul Dufy, Henri Matisse, Maurice Utrillo, Kees van Dongen and Maurice Vlaminck.

From the 1920s, Kickert began to adopt a more naturalistic style. As a theme, he often chose figures, landscapes and still lifes. As he often continued to work with the palette knife rather than a brush, his work retained a contemporary feel. He is better known in France than in the Netherlands.
